  1. Nice videos on the feets. I was hoping JVC would make a video of them. It was my first thought when I started installing mine. Very nice work.

  2. I still need to install my feet! I am looking forward to watching the whole process of mold-making.

  3. This looks like a lot of fun. The feet on one of my Royal 10s are just toast and may have to try your method.

  4. I was trying to reach Ted Munk or anyone else who may be interested. My mom has an ibm electronic selectric composer and a bunch of type balls. Some have not even been used. Mom ised to have a typesetting business.

Before I take the plunge and try and cast my own rubber feet for the various Olympia machines I’m refurbishing, (SM3, SM4, SM7, SM9), I’m wondering if you have any pre-made molds and whether you’d be willing to sell feet that you make? I couldn’t find a way to contact you privately, so here I am just begging out in the open. Thanks for your time! Feel free to email me directly if you don’t want to reply here. Cheers!
